We'll want an early start to avoid some of the heat of the day. Pace will be moderate. There are many side trails in this area and we'll need to stay together as a group. If you want to run up the trail, this may not be the trip for you.

There are no water sources on the trail, so be sure to bring all you need. I'd guess at least 2 liters.
